Do you notice your church staff dragging a little lately?

If so, you’re not alone.

A recent Barna Study during the pandemic showed that church staff felt:

• Tired (51%)
• Exhausted (41%)
• Sad (41%)
• Panicked (39%)
• Powerless (17%)
• Angry (16%)
• Indifferent (5%)

Yet, we believe just a few manageable steps can have a major impact on the job satisfaction and wellbeing of church staff members. We’ve created this guide to help you lead your staff to health and joy.

The Cost of Church Staff Turnover

When church staff members feel discontent or burned out, it often leads to high turnover rates.

This can have a real cost to the congregation, including:

  • Severance, anything from one to six month’s pay
  • Staff search costs, including posting to online boards, travel, meals, and staff hours invested in search
  • Relocation costs
  • On-boarding costs, including training, books, and conferences
  • Loss in giving when a beloved leader leaves
  • Lost rhythm in staff schedules and camaraderie
  • Increased burnout of remaining staff

Retaining talented staff should be a high priority for senior leaders. Otherwise, the church could feel the consequences of high turnover for years. 

How to honor your tithers.

Did you know that 81% of all church donations come from individual donors?

But we don’t have to tell you that. You can probably already picture the individuals and families in your church who tithe faithfully, giving what they can.

We believe the best way you can honor their giving is to take advantage of every free resource out there for your congregation. 

But it’s hard knowing where to look and who to trust for those resources.

That’s why our Church Base team has done the research for you!
